We know this year’s iPhone 7 refresh won’t be a big one, but just how similar will it be to the iPhone 6s? Find out in the video below which compares last year’s iPhone with the one we’re all expecting to see this September.
At first glance, the iPhone 7 looks no different; it’s almost exactly the same size and shape as its predecessor — though some reports have indicated it will be slightly thicker. But there are some subtle design changes to look forward to.
The most obvious change is that new camera lens, which is noticeably bigger than last year’s. Apple delivers significant camera improvements with every iPhone it rolls out, and this only confirms we’ll see more of the same this September.
You will also notice the headphone jack is missing from the new model — as expected — and has been replaced by what appears to be a secondary speaker grille. Some reports have suggested the iPhone 7 will be louder, but still won’t offer stereo sound.
The other design change is those revamped antenna bands we’re all familiar with now. They’re still there, but they’ve been repositioned so that they no longer run right through the back of the iPhone’s aluminum unibody.
A new photo that leaked out of China today suggests the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus won’t be the only smartphones in Apple’s refreshed lineup this fall. It looks like we will also see a 7 Pro — and you’ll have to choose that model if you want a dual-lens camera and Smart Connector.
